South Korea Building Self-Sufficient Super-City at What Cost? – Self-sustainable city – Gizmodo

Designed by Foster + Partners, the Inhabitat “super-city” will incorporate biomass energy generation, hydrogen fuel cells, and hydroponic roofs in order to be the greener city on the other side. No word on how much pollution the construction will cause.

The hope is that Inhabitat will one day become an epicenter of R&D for sustainable industries and promote the eco-friendly approach to things. While it is said that the city will incorporate the natural topography of the region and minimize loss of agricultural space, I’m still skeptical about just how eco-friendly the actual construction process will be. Stay tuned over the next 10 to 15 years and we’ll find out.
